Catholic Schools Week – Grandparents Day

Thanks to all who helped to celebrate Catholic Schools Week.  Grandparents Day last Wednesday was very special.  Together with our children we pray for all Grandparents:

Loving God,

Bless all our grandparents,

those with us here today,

those who cannot be with us

and those who have gone to be with you.


May they heed your call to share their wisdom

and faith with us.

May they have courage and confidence

to hand on your gifts

of experience and knowledge

of stories, songs and memories.


May they continue to learn

and grow with us day by day.

Bless them and all of us gathered here today

with length of days and joy at the last.

We make this prayer

Through Christ our Lord.  Amen.
